GNU ddrescue 1.24-rc1 is ready for testing here

The sha256sum is:
6c8e9e3dfa10aa74ff086714859174de47a405535a2997b963135bb9d156a1aa ddrescue-1.24-rc1.tar.lz

Please, test it and report any bugs you find.

GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors.

Ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue mapfiles, shows mapfile contents, converts mapfiles to/from other formats, compares mapfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a mapfile if the rescue is done.

The homepage is at http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html

Changes in this version:

* Ddrescue now tries to create a backup copy of the mapfile, with the name <mapfile>.bak, every time it is going to overwrite a fsynced mapfile.

* On startup, ddrescue now verifies that the backup copy of the mapfile (if it exists) is not a non-regular file, and that its name is not the same as infile or outfile.
